As you sit here in the beautiful bridge between the years, saying goodbye to what’s been and anticipating what’s to come, it’s easy to get caught up in judgement of yourself.
Easy to look back and think about what you should have done, or what you failed to do. What you didn’t do well enough, enough of, or too much of.
And that doesn’t help anyone.
So, over the next few days, as you review your year, forget about collecting up the ‘didn’t dos’ and broken intentions; instead use a different lens – one that celebrates everything you did do, day to day to live and grow and help others do the same. One that reminds you that you’re a wonderful person doing your very best in a complex and challenging world.
Try these questions to get you started:
- Whose heart did you touch, whose pain did you help heal?
- When did you listen, to you, or to others when nobody else would?
- Where were you brave and strong?
- Where did you soften, or forgive?
- When were you completely and utterly unashamedly yourself?
- Who did you teach?
- What did you create?
- How did you stand up for what’s right?
- When did you fight for the truth?
- Which new parts of you did you push past the crap to discover?
Here’s a short video of this message over on our YouTube cannel too.
Thank you for being you,
See you on the other side.
